I have a question for you ladies. My dd 6 has stinky hair no matter how much I wash it I feel like her hair is stinky. We use the suave 3 in 1 shampoo. I think its time to switch her shampoo up but i am afraid of using adult shampoo on her. What shampoo do you use on your kids and how old are they?

I use head and shoulders on my 6yr old 2x a week and then I use kids shampoo any other time in the week.

I also use it 1x a week on my 8month old and 2yr old.

I use adult shampoo on my daughter because of the texture of her hair.

Some shampoos don't rinse out well and that can cause sour, stinky hair. Try rinsing her hair with apple cider vinegar before shampooing with a new shampoo to get rid of any residue left behind by the Suave.

We like Tresemme because a little goes a long way, or Head & Shoulders, but there are a lot of good shampoos out there and you may need to experiment before you find one that works well in her hair.

I use apple cider vinegar and baking soda. 8 oz of water,  oz acv and  TBS of baking soda. When it quits foaming I shake well to mix it up before pouring over my head. I leave it on for 2 minutes before I rinse. I use a 6 oz water bottle to mix this up in. I do this 2 x's a month.

DD 5 uses whatever DH and I use, usually Bed Head or another salon brand. She has fine hair that tangles easily and it's horrible to comb through when I use Suave Kids or anything similar.
